Fraser Foreshore Park Nature Ramble

Yumi and I had a wonderful stroll in Burnaby’s Fraser Foreshore  Park today.

Shh. . . Amateur naturalist at work!

We were concerned about these tadpoles — they were huge — ranging from 12 -15cm in appearance. Dunno if we have anything that large native in BC. . . Have reported the sighting to the City.

UPDATE: 5/29 — several local naturalists have chimed in that these are bullfrog tadpoles, not native to BC, and potentially very destructive of indigenous wildlife. City of Burnaby has no bullfrog program.
